How’s Enigma

The riddle of when how became how
May not be as confounding as
How simply, how became how
Or how, how manifests as how.
And may not be as troubling
As what in its essence came first.
How it evolved, or how it was once.
Or what was, before how became how, and
What transpired for how to assume how, or
What came to be, for how to develop into how.
Nonetheless, whatever the order or transpired,
What how may be now or came to be, may not
Necessarily be as important to decode as
Whether how should remain how.

Diary of Enikan 2 – Visual Reality – A Grasshopper And Leaves?

 So today, while I was driving at dusk thinking about the day ahead and trying to talk to my maker, the master and creator of the universe. Suddenly, apparently out of nowhere, something darted across the road before me and that cast the dye for this written soliloquy. How wrong we are sometimes about what we believe we see. Although, we believe we know and sometimes are certain of what we think we see, in reality, probably we are not. How often erroneous assumptions pervade our consciousness and take root therein almost obliterating objectivity. Although, we hold steadfast onto particular conceptions, nonetheless it is not always a case of – it always is – therefore it is… In retrospect, how wrong I probably was, when I marveled then in unwavering certainty and jocular manner about the grasshopper that skipped across the road before the wheels of my car. I considered how extremely lucky it was, to make it across the street just in the nick of time, thankfully. I drove onward and wondered where it was coming from, where it was going. Its apparent and fleeting skipping reminded me with fond nostalgia of a song I used to sing when I was in primary school – Grasshoppers, three a fiddling went…  Singing to myself, I continued on my merry way. A short distance later, up the hill, I came upon a carpet of fallen leaves and a little gust of wind in accord with the day’s elements lifted two and caused them to skip across the road before me, almost in unison. Yes, not unexpectedly, because of the elements … but now bewilderment engulfed me. Which was playing games on me, my eyes or my mind. After prior firm belief that it was a grasshopper I had seen earlier, uncertainty now pervaded my consciousness. Hence, after observing the two leaves rise and land almost in alternating equidistant spaces across the road similar to my unforgotten grasshopper, certainty was since replaced by ambivalence, to such extent that I doubted the veracity and confidence of what I thought I had most assuredly seen a few minutes ago. Concerning the leaves, they were clear and distinct because as they crossed, the dusk was lifting, and the beam of my headlamps illuminated their forms. Consequently, without human doubt I knew, or did I deduce, that they were leaves. Was I sure about what they were because I believed undoubtedly that they were leaves, undoubtedly because I had seen them or was this somewhat a resultant deduction because I seen a carpet of fallen leaves before the two leaves in motion. Of the leaves can I now be absolutely certain. And of the first encounter  … was it a grasshopper or a leaf…

Possibilties Never End

Indeed, the night is not over till the morning dawns,

Neither, the day complete till its ebbing moments set

And transform into the twilight that descends, and thence

The cycle ensues, for the darkness will yield yet again to light.

Therefore, the entirety of time, doth afford us, but many

Chances to maximize the full  potential of opportunities

That present, even if be, that they simply seem to offer

Just, the ability to recognize and embrace the gift of time,

And then within the scope of the continuous sequence, pledge

To decidedly employ its span to our enduring advantage.

Never Give Up!

Wisdom Prevailing

Refrain from courting the seductive enticement

Of the dastardly but evidently harmful trap,

For attendant to and within the darkness of the pit

Lie ills of ruinous and horrendous proportion.

Although alluring it may appear, as it beckons

With the tantalizing aroma of feigned attraction,

Endeavour not to accept its deceptive invitation

Wherein disaster of certain takes sure habitation.

 

Rather, with resolve, listen and follow ardently

Wisdom’s refrain, and pursue ye so earnestly

The alternative promise of hope’s true reality,

And that which is patently of responsible order.

For even though it, may emerge and fully unfold

Only whence its dawning is but timely and due, the

Persisting triumph, over that ominous snare, which

Loomed so treacherously to derail the benign spirit,

Will multiple the reward of faithful patience, and

Coupled with the bounty of a virtuous promise,

Justify the endurance that directed your upright steps

And sustained your days along the propitious course.

Seeking Organization

Clutter said: I do need some order to this chaos.

Organization said: It is but simple. Everything in its place and a place for everything.

Clutter replied: Well, it may be easy for you to accomplish because that is the order of your strengths.

Organization emphasized: If you get rid of what you do not need, create a place for everything  you need and put everything you need in its place, you will come to revile disorganization as I do.

Elevated Relevancy

We are all elements within the greater cause.

Therefore, we must seek and find our roles

And points of positive connection with others,

Towards the dignified respect of, and certainly

For the advancement of the cause of humanity.

Your actions count!

Perceived Reality

Which is it?

It is because I say it is or it is because it is.

It is because I say it is or is it because it is.

It is because I say it is  because it is.

Because it is I say it is because it is.

I say it is because it is.

It is because it is.

Because it is, it is.

Where is 2013?

Now that with expectancy we bid welcome to 2014

And resolve with determination to seek and embrace

Our portion of the bountiful promise amid this new year,

Let us not in hasty abandon cast into oblivion the passage of 2013.

For it, likewise came upon us as a new beginning of possibilities and hope.

And though, its moments have forever dissipated into the tunnel of existence.

Yet, within that past, that seems to fade deeply into the recesses of time

Truly elusive, lies unchanging the peaks and valleys of life’s previous course

Traversed within then concrete space, transforming into earned experience

To anchor our future paths with enriched knowledge and cultivated wisdom.

Thus as the new commences, forget ye not the instructive lessons of old

Rather, in its totality, let that year’s long journey, like others past, always

Guide future contemplation and choice towards the bounty embedded

Within the renewed cycle of prospects and horizons of the evolving year.

Thank you 2013.

Cherish The Times

Cherish each of the moments you live

And live to cherish the moments lived.

For it is but a short time given to all, within which

To embrace the gift in all its dimensions,

And make the best of the precious opportunity.

Rather than squander it in the hopelessness

Of despair and self-doubt, nay don ye the vest of

Steadfast courage and resolve undeterred to

Triumph and soar with the eternal winds of hope

Towards the promise of the fullness of life.

Therefore, my friend, minimize regret . . .

Love life, live free, be kind, and  live well.

Dreams Magnified

The span of life is not boundless . . .

Therefore, with all determination

Pursue your dreams, and resolve to climb

The mount Everest of your dreams.
